Is it because I’m blond or don’t I get out enough? The grocery store bagger put a “Thank You For Shopping Here” sticker on one of our paper bags. I thought it was supermarket PR. Who knew it was code for purchases paid for – not stolen.
Have you ever wondered why fresh flowers are put in upscale restrooms? They provide a subliminal message not to be messy.

I can’t tell Democrats and Republicans apart except by their party’s symbol. Unfortunately, the elephant doesn’t remember its campaign promises and the donkey is an ass.

Recently I was told white is the most popular color for luxury cars and silver is the most popular for both sports cars and compact cars. In car talk silver means cool and white means fastidious. Who knew fastidious means hard to please?
Finally something pleases Cousin Walter. He can have his picture on a U.S. postage stamp. I thought I’d see his picture inside the post office. Who knew?
